Former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy is now the head coach of the Chicago Bears

Bieniemy is being promoted after serving five seasons under Reid as the Chiefs running backs coach.

After five years waiting for his turn to be the next man up-er, next coach up-Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Eric Bieniemy will be named the team's offensive coordinator.

Prior to that, Bieniemy spent five seasons as Minnesota's running backs coach; producing a 1,000-yard runner in each of those seasons. He's a great teacher and has earned this opportunity.

A former running back who played nine seasons in the NFL, Bieniemy had some experience calling plays for two seasons (2011-12) at the University of Colorado, where he starred as a player.

"We all are aware of that situation and that's a very important hire for me, but there's a lot of things that go into that decision", the offensive-minded Nagy said, via the Chicago Tribune, about filling his defensive coordinator position.

"When I showed up for my interview with Mr. McCaskey [chairman of the Bears], he approaches me coming out of the vehicle and he says "I know you are from Lancaster" and asks me if I knew about McCaskey High which is in our division in high school". Bieniemy also mentored Jamaal Charles, the franchise's all-time leading rusher, for four seasons.
